logo ftcf // logo cneth // logo_anmctThe SPA town of Enghien-les-Bains will host the 7th and 8th of November, which is known as " European Meetings on Thermalism ", scientific meetings with involving national and European institutions to discuss topics of interest and today´s Thermalism. In this edition shall be represented scientific societies of Italy, Romania, Portugal, Luxembourg, Germany, Spain and Turkey as well as France, the host country.

Meetings are organized and coordinated by the French Federation Thermal and Climate in collaboration with the National Council of SPA consultants (CNETh) and the Association of Mayors of the thermal Cities (ANMCT).

Dr Christian Corne , Président de la F.T.C.F. and EHTTA, and Thierry Dubois, Président CNETH and ESPA treasurer in his presentation, highlighted the the reason for which is scheduled this important European meeting, taking into account that "European health gradually emerges and the first European landscape sketches of health revolve around transnational public health issues such as health, prevention and support to aging".

Also he make a reflection “ thermal activity is at the heart of health issues, and more than ever, it has a legitimate mission, which will allow it to find its place, and its alone, in health provision. Many questions remain about the vocation and the practice of our profession. Others questions have arisen, particularly due to the 2011 European Directive on cross-border healthcare. This new directive specifies the rights of patients who wish to receive health services from outside their country and guarantees the reimbursement of treatments by their country of origin’s health care system”.

“The enforcement of this directive requires evaluation and comparison of the various services offered by EU countries, in the medical, scientific, legal, regulatory, financial and environmental fields. Thermal facilities in various European countries are already working together within the European Association ESPA.”

They end up remembering  “ It seemed useful to synthesize our respective work by organising “European Thermal Meeting” in Enghien les Bains. We look forward to welcoming you in the spa resort of the town, which is in an enchanting area near to Paris. In the meantime, please accept our warmest regards”.
